Lester

By Shel Silverstein

Lester was given a magic wish
By the goblin who lives in the banyan tree,
And with his wish he wished for two more wishes-
So now instead of just one wish, he cleverly had three.
And with each one of these
He simply wished for three more wishes,
Which gave him three old wishes, plus nine new.
And with each of these twelve
He slyly wished for three more wishes,
Which added up to forty-six -- or is it fifty-two?
Well anyway, he used each wish
To wish for wishes 'til he had
Five billion, seven million, eighteen thousand thirty-four.
And then he spread them on the ground
And clapped his hands and danced around
And skipped and sang, and then sat down
And wished for more.
And more...and more...they multiplied
While other people smiled and cried
And loved and reached and touched and felt.
Lester sat amid his wealth
Stacked mountain-high like stacks of gold,
Sat and counted -- and grew old.
And then one Thursday night they found him
Dead -- with his wishes piled around him.
And they counted the lot and found that not
A single one was missing.
All shiny and new -- here, take a few
And think of Lester as you do.
In a world of apples and kisses and shoes
He wasted his wishes on wishing.

While many short people wish to be taller, some tall people wish they could be shorter. The grass seems to always be greener on the other side. Being tall may seem like a dream come true, but it can make life whole lot more complicated than it needs to be. Here are some classic examples of tall people struggles, from doorway safety hazards to awkward dressing rooms and bathroom stalls….

 

Dressing Room Disaster

 

 

While being tall means you can look good in certain outfits that others can’t, it also means that you’re probably going to struggle to try that clothing on in most dressing rooms. For this girl, the struggle is real and clear, and she was probably better off trying on the clothing while sitting or bringing her own curtain from home.

 

 

High Hug

 

 

While it’s always nice to have yourself a tall, manly boyfriend, sometimes this can also mean that it’s a challenge to properly hug them. Well, thank the lord for furniture that’s capable of holding up our weight. Otherwise, couples such as this one would be at a real loss. She could always hug his stomach, but it’s not exactly the same.

 

Bathtub Struggles

 

 

There’s nothing as relaxing as jumping into the bathtub after a long day of work. For tall people though? This isn’t exactly the most simple experience and requires a lot more thought than the average person. They’ve got to find room for their long legs, and sometimes even bend them like this girl.  Next time you take a hot bubble bath, you’ll surely appreciate it more.

 

 

Self Shortening Skills

 

 

Sometimes, you just need to be shorter to get the job done. Like this poor guy for example. All he wanted was a simple passport photo, but he was too tall to make it into the picture. Thankfully, after a lifetime of struggling with his height, he learned some nifty skills on how to shorten himself, such as holding a split.

 

Too Tall For The Stalls

 

 

 

Some people are just too tall for the stalls. Thankfully this isn’t a unisex bathroom, because otherwise that would make things a whole lot more awkward. Nonetheless, however, it’s still not exactly the most comfortable of situations.  Next time you wish to grow a few inches, remember this picture and be grateful of the fact that you can go to the bathroom in private.

 

 

Mirror, Mirror,  Literally On The Wall

 

 

While we all love to look at ourselves in the mirror and remember that classic and iconic Snow White quote about the mirror, mirror on the wall, this guy literally has the mirror on the wall. Well, that’s what happens when you’re just too tall for life. Mirrors and other objects aren’t made to suit these people, and they have no choice but to come up with creatives alternatives.
